Good news for Pet Owners

13-01-2014 New policy for the carriage of pets 

Red Funnel has started the New Year by announcing major changes to its policy with respect to the carriage of pets: -

1)    Dogs (and pets carried in suitable RSPCA approved containers) can now travel free of charge on the Red Jet Hi-Speed service.

2)    On the passenger vehicle ferry service, dogs can travel in a designated area of the main passenger lounge on B Deck – this is in addition to the pet area on A Deck.

Jonathan Green, Sales & Marketing Director commented “Red Funnel welcomes pet owners and to help cope with growing demand on the East Cowes/Southampton route we have reviewed the areas that pets are allowed. We are also waiving charges for pets on the Red Jets from West Cowes. On the vehicle service, we have listened carefully to customers and the new policy will improve the experience for pet owners ahead of the new high-spec pet lounge announced for Red Falcon as part of her new look in April”.

Although the changes apply with immediate effect pet owners are advised to read the Company’s pet policy before travelling.
